Since its third season, the Canadian Mountain Podcast has strived to share perspectives of both Ancestral Indigenous Knowledge Holders and settler-science research conducted through the Canadian Mountain Network. This podcast episode stories the journey a team of undergraduate researchers undertook to prepare a land acknowledgement, and the reflexive steps they maintained throughout. Around the land acknowledgement discussion, both producers for the podcast discuss the roles of intellectual property and copyright as it applies to Indigenous intellectual property in audio production, and discuss their goals for the show’s fifth and final season.
